We had an excellent Italian meal, where pastas were outstanding. I recommend going for main portions, as the entree size is truly small. Dining room is small, so not ideal if place is full. Service can be slow.

Food was not bad but service leaves much to be desired. It did not seem to be any interest in assisting customers.
